I don't have anything older, so this'll have to do:

*bus hit a pothole somewhere north of the Belt Pkwy and the door hinge was busted leaving us stranded just outside the Toys'r'us parking lot for another bus to pick us up.

It was also the few, if not only ex-GBL RTS with the single green stripe.

Sorry for rebumping this thread but 1012 which is in Varsity has only one stripe as well but had 2 before. On the front of every Green Bus Lines RTS there was only one green stripe except for 1014 which had a light and dark green stripe on the front but that bus was an RTS-03 which has been gone since 2000/2001.

1014 was the only RTS from GBL I remember with 2 stripes on the front and the number 1014 had to be written in a white box. like how command writes their numbers. I guess it was Green Lines's mistake as they repainted it from the original RTS-03 paint scheme. It could've been the first bus repainted because it had 2 stripes on the front such as an MCI Classic(The first buses to have the green stripes paint scheme) and it looked weird cause the Green Lines logo text was a bit squashed so I guess any RTS getting painted from then on got only one stripe on the front. Only the MCI Classics and Orion V's got 2 stripes on the front.

GBL #245 before having one stripe it had the regular 2 stripes sides and 1 stripe front. Same with 1012. Also, GBL 647 ex-Command 389 had the bottom painted green like how JBI had theirs brown and cTc had their Lightning stripe scheme bottom Red. I can only find a picture of the back right side of 647 on bustalk. I do remember seeing 647 around 1998-1999 and again in 2002. This bus did not survive MTA takeover.
